Post-Pop Trio Youth League Sign with Cardigan Records!!! 24 March 2015
Youth League, the post-pop trio from Wilmington, NC, has joined the roster at Cardigan Records. Brothers Mike and Zach Large, on guitar/vocals and drums respectively, formed the band in 2014 from the ashes of math aggressors Virgin Lung. They brought in bassist Jaffar Omar Obi Castillon-Martinez and created songs which defy the conventions on which they're built, yet hit the ear with a natural familiarity.
Their debut EP First will be released on 4/21. You can preorder First HERE . The six track record clocks in at just 16 minutes and marries rough punk edges with pop sensibility.
To celebrate the release Youth League is hitting the road with fellow Cardigan Records artists Iselia and Bear Girl as well as Wilmington's ipretend surprise!.
